Ami Suzuki - THE BEST


Ami Suzuki (鈴木亜美, Suzuki Ami, born February 9, 1982) is a female singer, songwriter, actress and dancer from Zama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.

Having been discovered at a Sony Music Entertainment Japan audition, Suzuki was one of the most popular female singers as an idol in the late 1990s. However, in 2000 faced legal problems with her management company. In 2005, she signed onto Avex Trax and released Delightful, a dance song that reached No. 3 on the Japanese Oricon charts. Her current style of music, similar to electronic, is vastly different from when she first became a musician.
